So, with any luck, I will be studying physics in university come this fall, and of course, I need a computer. I am currently (sigh) a windows user, but I've been wanting to switch to a Mac for all the reasons everyone always says. My only concern, however, is that, since I will likely be doing some programming and such of a very specific nature, I might lack the ability to do so on a Mac. I'll always be able to use the university computers, I suppose, but that would be a bit of a bummer. I was wondering if there's anyone around here who either works in the field or knows if this would be a problem - would a Mac be okay for studying physics at university?
